Motorola DEFY

Last updated: Nov 16th, 2010.

The Motorola DEFY is the newest Motorola Android device announced for T-Mobile USA. It sports a 3.7 inch touchscreen, Android 2.1 with MOTOBLUR, and is being advertised as "Lifeproof" by Motorola.

The DEFY gets its name by supposedly defying the elements: it is waterproof, dustproof, and scratch resistant, making it an optimal choice for partiers, field workers, clumsy folks, and anyone who may take their phone into any kind of elements that may normally render it broken. We actually did a test with the DEFY, poured water on it, and it still worked perfectly.

The Motorola DEFY also cmoes with a 5MP camera and the social features found in MOTOBLUR.
